You and I remember the Wizard of Oz very differently.

Someone who plays an rpg just to get stronger than everyone else at the table. They usually abuse rules and loopholes to squeeze every drop of godmodding out of the game. E.G. one guy figured out how to play a level 3 lizard in D&D that has infinite strength.
Powergamers.
No one likes them.
Unless it's Exalted, then it doesn't matter.

How does one become a leverk three lizard with unlimited strength

That sounds annoying for everyone else in the game but fun to try to work such an intricate system like that. There should be games just for powergamers to try to out-godmod each other 0.0

Well it's called Pun pun [I think]. They just abused a whole bunch of rules that do things like give you X effect if you have X effect etc. But everyone knows about it now so no one allows it.

It's annoying for everyone unless the powergamer also roleplays. But they rarely do. Although sometimes they can be awesome, particularly when they do things like give their charrie disadvantages in exchange for better skills [e.g. making their earthbender a blind twelve year old https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukr5c07gaUI ]
It is good fun working within the system like that, not that I'm any good at it. But anyone someone finds a way to be a paraplegic who can fly and breathe acid or a bear covered in fire and lightning that uses the souls of its victims to build a universe I get a warm fuzzy feeling.
And there is a game like that; it's called Anima. It makes Exalted look as balanced as chess.

I feel like Exalted is the game for powergamers to try to out-godmod each other :P

THIS KID GETS IT. Everyone gets to be the powergamer!

Speaking of which I totally forgot the Exalted/D&D RPs were a thing that exist. I would check them now but I was just about to go to sleep (rewarding myself with rest after a tiring afternoon deciding whether I should make up the notecards I didn't do and eventually deciding it wasn't worth it). I honestly will try to check that out tonorrow. Someone remind me because I'm terrible with those sorts of things 9-9

That's totally cool. I've been frantic with University starting so I'm going to take a break from rp stuff till tomorrow at least. Probably the day after.
